LITTLE LION

Well, I have made a <disturbing> discovery about myself. 

I have trouble with CLEAN AND SIMPLE. There. I've said it. The first step, right?

On Sunday, when the Paper Players announced their new challenge, use a wild animal on your CAS (CLEAN AND SIMPLE) card, I decided to take them up on their challenge. 

My mind immediately showed me a picture of what I wanted my card to look like. I went ahead and followed my mind, and this is exactly what I'd pictured:


Sure, it was fun to make. I mean, who can't love that precious little lion? The cute Happy Birthday from the free stamp set we received in our April Paper Pumpkin kit is wonderful. The funky leaves from the Botanical Blooms set produce a believable safari presence (just kidding!). And, it truly was Clean and Simple. 

But, I don't like it. 

I need MORE! 

I want to add to it.

Clean and Simple is not my friend.


A single Stampin' Dimensional to pop up the lion's fluffy head and mane . . .


Anyway, this is the challenge upon which I based my Little Lion card:

  1. For someone who struggles with clean and simple you sure did a great job, Linda! I love that cute litle lion and how you keep all your stamping on a small area of your card. Perfectly CAS! Thanks so much for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players!

  2. This little lion is the cutest! I like how you used the patterned paper to stamp his face on and then raised it up over the body. He looks great. Thanks for playing along with us this week at The Paper Players.

  10. So cute. Makes me want to start scrapbooking again. The dimensional lion head was a perfect addition to the design.
